The future of hemp-derived cannabinoids

The hemp industry has made momentous strides since Congress passed the first piece of federal legislation reintroducing American-grown hemp to the U.S. marketplace in 2014. Over the last half-decade or so, an industry has been birthed, resulting in nearly every state in the country passing some type of hemp-related legislation.

While every state—excluding Idaho, as of press time—has passed some type of law legalizing the cultivation of hemp, many states have also expressly authorized the use of hemp and hemp-derived ingredients, including cannabinoids, in various consumer products, from foods and beverages to cosmetics to pet products.
